Bogus Inland Revenue call stating that a fraud case has been opened against me. Terminated call immediately knowing it was a scam call.
Tax fraud scam
This number called and a man with very poor English (sounded Indian) said he was calling from the complaints department of the UK electricity board as there was a problem with the landlord's electricity supply. Then, he said he was passing me to his supervisor (it was STILL him, by the way, speaking in a slightly different voice). He said it was about the electricity meter. I don't have one. It was total lies. I said I would report him and there would be a fine because this was against GDPR legislation. Scam.

Call response allegedly from British Gas following a message from 86333
I have just received a fraudulent phone call on the works mobile on the above number. The caller was requesting card details to pay for a fine for speeding in London (never driven in London.) I obviously did not fall for it or give any bank details over the phone. How do you report fraudulent phone calls? Just concerned they are trying it on with other people.
I had a call about an accident that I had not had , nor any family members. I get similar scam calls almost every day!
My husband responded to the pop up add on his computer. I was only aware when he came to get his credit card. They wanted £400 and I intervened and took over the phone. I checked the computer and the add kept popping up so realised it was a scam and did not proceed.
